Systems Leadership Series: Delivering – Innovation across systems

Virtual via Zoom.

Introducing our informative and engaging systems leadership series which builds upon the success of the complete leadership series.  As a response to the newly formed ICS’s these master classes are based on the Northwest NHS Leadership Academy’s systems leadership model of principles and behaviours and explore the move to systems thinking and working within the NHS. This series comprises of four virtual masterclasses on systems leadership (with accompanying podcasts). 

This is the final masterclass in the series and focusses on the journey of discovery! Mobilising innovation and action across a system. The facilitator will explore and ignite: 

– The courage to take risks, filled with examples of successful system change projects 

– Raising confidence, enthusiasm and courage to embark on innovative change.  

– To catalyse, enable and support widespread action rather than occupying the spotlight   

– Embark on a journey of discovery and insight as Systems thinking emerges 

– An approach to growing innovation across the system  

– To catalyse, enable and support widespread action rather than occupying the spotlight   

– Embark on a journey of discovery and insight as Systems thinking emerges 

Many attempts at spreading innovation are push models (e.g., roll out!). A systemic approach to innovation builds on insights from evolution – a pull model. When leading, designing of the process is a key skill. We will explore what it takes to catalyse, enable and support widespread action rather than occupy the spotlight. As system change is never smooth, developing processes for learning together becomes a key component of leadership 

Although the masterclasses build upon a story, they are designed to be independent of one another. Therefore you can choose to attend all four sessions ,  they are scheduled for the following dates and can be booked on individually via the links:
